Good evening Georabblers of Brisbane!
Can you sense the excitement in the air…24 hours to go…until the long-awaited return of Georabble!
It’s been a long time between ‘rabbles – we’ve been cancelled twice due to COVID, but it looks like nothing can stop us now.
We will see you tomorrow night from 5:30 at the Charming Squire. Formalities to kick off around 6pm.
We have three fabulous speakers lined up – Jessica Watson, Marcus Toyne and Wayne Lee-Archer – who have some interesting stories to tell.
There is still some capacity for the event – so make sure you invite your BGF (Best-Geo-Friend), or anyone that likes maps, beer or hot chips, and register at the following link:
Please be aware that a new registration is required for this event (the cancelled event tickets do not carry over). But I’ve made sure that the tickets are free 😊
Georabble is run by volunteers – so our event is made possible through this event’s sponsor Pointerra – they will be serving up a massive cloud of hot chips to keep us happy.
GeoRabble Sydney is this week, and we’re excited to announce the lineup of speakers who have kindly volunteered to enlighten us for the evening. Tickets are limited so get in quick!

Calling all GeoGeeks in the Sydney region, we are excited to announce that Georabble is officially back on the map!
Our first post-COVID event will be held on Thursday 15th April at Hotel Harrys in Surry Hills, starting at 6pm with speakers kicking off shortly after.
Due to capacity restrictions tickets are limited, so get in quick! Attendees will receive a drink voucher on arrival.
Speakers to be announced shortly, but for those about to experience their first ever GeoRabble the details are simple:
– Presentations no longer than 10 minutes
– Celebrate each others’ triumphs
– Respect each others’ choice – no technology bigotry
– No sales pitches – this includes services, software, data etc.
– No company logos or ‘about us’ slides
So grab yourself a ticket, get off Zoom, and come catch up F2F with old friends and make some new ones while you’re at it.
See you there!
